The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda comprises 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They serve to promote sustainable peace and prosperity and to protect our planet. What is so big starts small: Where measures become effective and tangible for people on a daily basis.
Supporting municipalities in their key role
“Municipalities play a central role in implementing the 2030 Agenda. Many municipalities have already set out on the path to a sustainable future, and many more are currently working on strategies and measures,” says Marc Wolinda of the Bertelsmann Stiftung.
In order to support municipalities in impact-oriented sustainability management, leading municipal associations, the Bertelsmann Stiftung and other partner organisations have created the SDG portal. “For example, the portal offers 56 SDG indicators with data for all municipalities with a population of 5,000 or more, SDG measures and a reporting tool,” Marc Wolinda explains further.
SDG portal now integrated on Loanboox
With one click on the SDG portal linked on the platform, all the goals already pursued by the municipality appear with stored indicators. The information, which can be accessed quickly, is an added value for investors as an orientation, since the importance of sustainable financing is becoming more and more important.
For municipalities, a whole catalogue of measures and examples for the implementation of the SDGs is available as inspiration for their own sustainable development. In addition, there is the possibility of comparison with other municipalities as well as the documentation of their own sustainable development through a reporting function.
